The entire experience was great! This is our 1st time going through a service like this and I was skeptical, but the entire process was so smooth. I loved the customer service from the team (Stromi), the continual updates via the app and most important finding our new family member that we are already so in love with!
There’s no other way to say it – Maltipoos are the cutest. They are a popular crossbreed of the Maltese and Poodle, which gives them a fuzzy fluffy coat and adorable big eyes. Maltipoos are a smaller dog and shed infrequently. They have high energy levels and require moderate exercise to stay healthy. They are a fun-loving, affectionate breed perfect as companions for new pet owners, young families, and empty nesters.
As a crossbreed between a Maltese and Poodle, Maltipoos can come in a wide variety of colors, including black, gray, red, cream, white, fawn, apricot, chocolate, gold, and even yellow.
Maltipoos are fun-loving dogs with a lot of active energy. They love going for walks, playing games, and generally running around the house. They prefer being indoors with their humans and don’t need a big outdoor space to be happy.
Being companion dogs, Maltipoos need lots of human companionship. They may develop separation anxiety when you leave them alone too long or when they don’t get enough attention.
They're relatively easy to train, but you will need to be patient. Maltipoos are intelligent and learn quickly, yet they can react sensitively to overly-aggressive behavior. Be kind and gentle with all your pups!
A healthy amount of positive reinforcement and treats will help create a smooth training process and a wonderful companion. Being so affectionate makes Maltipoos a perfect choice for new pet owners. They are also popular among empty nesters. They love nothing more than snuggling with you on the couch.
Maltipoos are one of the smaller dog breeds. They can grow to weigh up to 20 pounds and 8 to 14 inches in height. Maltipoos are generally healthy and enjoy a typical lifespan of 10 to 13 years.
How dog-friendly is Texas?
We’ve looked at several studies to evaluate where states rank in pet-friendliness and safety, and the great state of Texas is basically right in the middle. Texas has some really excellent places to raise your dogs, with a few key drawbacks you might want to consider.
Pawsafe ranks Texas 30th in terms of pet-friendliness. In a similar study, Safewise ranked Texas as the 28th most pet-friendly state. These studies examine numerous factors, including pet care costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws. All these factors help us see how happy and safe our pets and the animals around them can be.
Texas has a relatively high percentage of pet-friendly rentals at 29%. That puts the state in the top five for pet-friendly rentals. In fact, 43.4% of Texas residents own a dog – above the national average of 40%. Overall, Texas has a slightly above average pet ownership rate of 58%. Texas clearly loves its pets!
The best cities for pet ownership in Texas
Texas is a big place – so what about individual cities? WalletHub analyzed the most pet-friendly cities in the United States and Texas cities performed pretty well!
WalletHub rated Austin, Plano, Fort Worth, Houston, and Corpus Christi the most pet-friendly cities, at 15th, 20th, 35th, 36th, and 39th out of 100 cities around the U.S.
A few other Texas cities rank further down the list. El Paso, Lubbock, San Antonio, and Dallas ranked 52nd, 55th, 71st, and 72nd, respectively. Irving, near Dallas, has a relatively high concentration of dog parks, with 1.2 parks per 100,000 residents. They tied for 40th among major cities.
Austin ranks most pet-friendly city in Texas
Austin ranks high in almost every study as a happy place for dogs. SmartAsset found Austin to be the 19th most pet-friendly city in the country.
Some of Austin’s notable qualities included over 513 dog-friendly restaurants. Austin also has the most dog-friendly shopping centers of any city, with 28. There are 65 pet stores and offices for every 10,000 establishments in the state.
The Trust for Public Land (TPL) found that Austin has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Texas
We’re sad to sy that in 2019, Texas ranked second in shelter pet deaths and euthanasia. The state had previously ranked first for shelter pet deaths, so at least it is improving. Plus, Texas saved 44,601 more animals in 2020 than in 2019.
The state has an overall save rate of 81.6%. A 90% save rate is required to be a no-kill state. We’re happy to see more and more movement toward protecting the animal community and placing pups in happy homes.
